Amid probe, Pakistan bars German CEO of national carrier from leaving countryBy Syed Raza Hassan KARACHI, Pakistan (Reuters) – Pakistan has barred the German chief executive of Pakistan International Airlines from leaving the country due to an investigation into corruption at the loss-making carrier, the interior minister said on Wednesday. Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said Bernd Hildenbrand has been put on the “exit control list” (ECL), which forbids individuals from leaving the country, due to an ongoing probe into the lease of planes from a Sri Lankan carrier. “(Hildenbrand’s) name was placed on ECL some two or three days back,” Khan told reporters in Karachi, outlining concerns about management of PIA.
